19:1And it came to passe that when Iesus had fynisshed these sayinges, he gat hym from Galile, & came into the coastes of Iewry beyonde Iordan,
19:2& moche people folowed hym, & he healed them there.
19:3The Pharises also came vnto him temptinge him, & saying vnto him: Is it lawfull for a man to make a deuorcement wt his wyfe for any maner of cause?
19:4He answered & sayd vnto them: Haue ye not red, how that he which made man at the begynnynge made them man & woman:
19:5& sayd, for thys cause shall a man leaue father & mother, & shall cleue vnto hys wyfe, & they twayne shalbe one flesshe.
19:6Wherfore now, they are not twayne, but one flesshe. Let not man therfore put a sunder, that whych God hath coupled together.
19:7They saye vnto hym: why dyd Moses then commaunde to geue a testimoniall of dyuorsement, & to put her awaye?
19:8He sayde vnto them: Moses (because of the hardnes of youre hertes) suffered you to put awaye youre wyfes: But from the beginnyng it was not so.
19:9I saye vnto you: whosoeuer putteth awaye his wyfe (except it be for fornicacion) & marieth another, breaketh wedlocke. And whoso marieth her whych is deuorsed, doeth commyt aduoutry.
19:10Hys disciples saye vnto him: yf the mater be so betwene man & wyfe, then is it not good to mary.
19:11He sayd vnto them: all men cannot comprehend this saying saue they to whom it is geuen:
19:12for ther are some chaste whych are so borne out of their mothers wombe. And ther are some chaste, which be made chaste of men. And ther be chaste, which haue made them selues chaste for the kyngdome of heuens sake. He that can comprehende it, let him comprehend it.
19:13Then were there brought vnto hym yonge chyldren, that he shuld put hys handes on them, & praye. And the disciples rebuked them.
19:14But Iesus sayde vnto them: suffre the chyldren & forbid them not to come vnto me: for of soch is the kyngdom of heauen.
19:15And when he had put hys handes on them, he departed thence.
19:16And beholde, one came, & sayd vnto him: good master, what good thynge shall I do that I maye haue eternall lyfe?
19:17He sayd vnto him: why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, & that is God. But yf thou wilt entre into lyfe, kepe the commaundementes.
19:18He sayeth vnto hym. Whych? Iesus sayde Thou shalt not commit manslaughter. Thou shalt not commyt aduoutrye: Thou shalt not steale: Thou shalt not beare false witnes:
19:19honoure father and mother: and thou shalt loue thyne neybour as thy selfe.
19:20The younge man sayeth vnto him: All these thinges haue I kepte from my youth vp: what lacke I yet?
19:21Iesus sayd vnto hym, yf thou wilt be perfecte go & sell that thou hast, & geue to the poore, & shall haue treasure in heauen, & come & folowe me.
19:22But when the younge man herde that saying, he went awaye sorye. For he had grete possessyons.
19:23Then Iesus sayd vnto his disciples: Uerely I say vnto you: it shalbe harde for the ryche to enter into the kingdom of heauen.
19:24And agayne I saye vnto you: it is easyer for a camell to go through the eye of a nedle, then for the ryche to enter into the kyngdom of God.
19:25When the disciples hearde this, they were excedindly amased, saying: who than can be saued?
19:26But Iesus behelde them, and sayd vnto them: wyth men this is vnpossyble but wt God all thynges are possyble.
19:27Then answered Peter, & sayd vnto him: Beholde we haue forsaken all, and folowed the, what shall we haue therfore?
19:28Iesus sayd vnto them: verely I saye vnto you: that when the sonne of man shall syt in the seate of hys maiestye, ye that haue folowed me in there generacyon shall syt also vpon .xij. seates, & iudge the .xij. trybes of Israel.
19:29And euery one that forsaketh house, or brethren, or systers, or father, or mother, or wyfe, or chyldren, or landes, for my names sake, shall receaue an hundred folde, & shall inheret euerlastynge lyfe.
19:30But many that are fyrst, shalbe last and the last shalbe fyrst.

The Great Bible 1539

The Great Bible of 1539 was the first authorized edition of the Bible in English, authorized by King Henry VIII of England to be read aloud in the church services of the Church of England. The Great Bible was prepared by Myles Coverdale, working under commission of Thomas, Lord Cromwell, Secretary to Henry VIII and Vicar General. In 1538, Cromwell directed the clergy to provide "one book of the bible of the largest volume in English, and the same set up in some convenient place within the said church that ye have care of, whereas your parishioners may most commodiously resort to the same and read it."
